Haiku 76

Haiku 76

Haikus sounding an alarm for the unsuspecting :

Was poor, caught cancer;
Both came alone, unfriendly -
Each silent, snuck up.

The poor, moneyless, 
Without hope, without help, starve -
The rich eat lobster.

Do as Jesus did :
Feed the poor, care for the sick -
Lead revolutions.

The strong become weak
When challenged to accept change -
How else does Man grow ?

Forget me not, not
Because you are so special -
But, that you're honest.

Into the daylight,
Out from dark of ignorance -
March wisdom seekers.

Ronald C. Downie
